Experienced Denver Air Filters and Air Purifiers
As homes continue to become more energy-efficient, concerns about indoor air pollution continue to gain more attention. Levels of indoor air pollutants and allergens may often be higher than outdoors. To help raise the quality of your home’s indoor air, Save Home Heat Company provides homeowners in Denver, CO and surrounding communities with high-quality whole-home air filter and air purification products. In combination, quality central air purifiers and air filters can significantly lower the levels of many common airborne particles, from dust to viruses and bacteria, and more.
Our team has over four decades of experience assisting homeowners in helping our customers make their homes a safer, more comfortable, healthier place to live. You can count on Save Home Heat Company to provide you professional, honest, expert advice and highly customer-focused service for all your indoor air quality (IAQ) needs.
Denver Air Purification
Save Home Heat Company installs state-of-the-art central air purifiers for central forced-air heating systems that typically use a furnace or an air handler, often in conjunction with a central AC system. The high-quality air purification system that our team recommends is highly effective at treating a broad range of airborne and surface viruses, bacteria, and mold, and also assists in reducing dust, pet dander, pollen, smoke, and the broad class of potentially harmful indoor pollutants known as VOCs, or volatile organic chemicals.
VOCs are a class of chemicals that are released in our homes as a gas, which in high enough levels can be harmful to our health. Some of the many sources of VOCs include gas cooking byproducts, paints, glues, solvents and varnishes, air fresheners, disinfectants, cigarette smoke, cosmetics, wax, and even lumber and home furnishings. The right central air purifier can significantly reduce the levels of these and other indoor pollutants.
Installed in the ducting by your furnace or air handler, the high-quality air purifiers our team installs use ultraviolet light with a specially developed catalyst material to cleanse all of the air in your home, not just air passing thru the ducting system. They also assist your furnace filter in doing a better job. Fresher, healthier air all around your home will be the result.
Air Purifiers treat:
- Airborne and surface bacteria and viruses
- Mold spores
- Dust, pollen, and pet dander
- A wide range of chemicals & volatile organic compounds
- Smoke and other household odors
Quality Denver Air Filters
In addition to air purification, improved air filtration is another key to improving your indoor air quality at home. In homes heated by a central forced-air furnace, whole-house air filtration is performed by the furnace filter. In many cases, the existing 1″ furnace filter captures only a small percentage of airborne dust and other indoor pollutants circulating around your home. A high performance or high-efficiency furnace filter will remove a wider range of dust particles, along with pollen, mold, pet dander. Some filters are effective at reducing common bacteria, germs, and viruses.
Our home comfort team recommends high-performance media air filters in many of the homes that we visit, because of the range of benefits that they provide. Depending on the specific situation, we often install media filters with efficiency ratings in the MERV11 to MERV16 range, the higher the number the more efficient the filter. These are a big step up in performance from standard 1″ thick filters, and some models even incorporate activated carbon, for assistance in odor reduction. Once of the nicest features of media air cleaners is that they typically require replacement only once every 6 to 12 months.
Air Filter Efficiency and Airflow Considerations
A word of caution about high-efficiency furnace filters: The most efficient filter is not always the best fit for every system. In some cases, the highest-rated filters may be too restrictive to airflow and could create potential issues for your heating and AC systems, impeding their abilities to their jobs properly and potentially shortening the lifespan of the equipment. This is where professional advice from an experienced, trusted HVAC contractor will make all the difference. In the Denver-Boulder area, Save Home Heat Company is your go-to source to make sure you’re making the right decision.
High Efficiency Media Furnace Filters:
- Reduce airborne dust, pollen, pet dander, and other allergens
- Help remove common viruses, bacteria, and mold from your indoor air
- Help your furnace and AC system operate at optimum efficiency
- Provide excellent protection for the indoor cooling coil on central AC systems
- Work great in combination with a high quality air purifier and a central humidifier
- Require less frequent replacing and are much more effective than 1” furnace filters
- Are a great way to improve your indoor air quality and quality of life at home!
While some homeowners may opt to use portable air filters and purifiers, our team only sells central, whole-home air filter and air purification systems. Portable units provide a limited coverage area and often require significant routine maintenance in order to maintain performance. In addition, noise levels can be quite noticeable. If your needs encompass your entire home, and you have a central furnace or air handler, we recommend that you learn more about whole-home solutions.
In addition to media air cleaners, there are other furnace filter products available such as HEPA filters, electronic air cleaners, and hybrid units that incorporate UV technology. We’d be glad to discuss any of these options with you and provide free install quotes on any product you’re interested in.
Air Purification, Filtration, and Humidification Work Together!
If your goal is to achieve the cleanest, healthiest indoor air attainable for your home, we recommend that you consider a combination of a high-quality central air purifier and a high-performance furnace filter. In many cases, it also makes good sense to include a quality central humidifier in the equation, for the ultimate home IAQ system.
